If you can make it work for Laredo and Limited why not Overland? What I'm saying is that at least on Summit you should be able to get everything that you can get on Overland.

Re: 2014 Overland vs. Summit

The thing is, and this is coming from someone that wants all the Summit features but loves the look of the Overland 100% better, that there has to be some features exclusive to a certain model otherwise there really is no point to purchasing that said model.

Re: 2014 Overland vs. Summit

When I bought my MDX there were three trim levels that determined how the car was equipped. The only option was whether or not you wanted a rear entertainment center.

Jeep losing a sale just over adaptive headlights is probably very rare.

Usually if you have model A, B,C,D than as you move from model A cheapest to model D most expensive you get something like this. B = everything that is on A plus so and so.

I've never seen situation like this:
A: model A can only get heated seats
B: model B can only get towing package
C: model C can only get HID
D: model D can only get NAV

So if you want NAV, HID with heated seats and towing package there is no way you can get it unless you buy 4 different models.

That's what it is:
Overland: Overland model can get ORAII and Indigo
Summit: only Summit model can get Adaptive headlights but not ORAII and Indigo.

In that case I would not call Summit top model. It is not. Overland is top model as well. Summit is more expensive but it is not the model loaded with everything. I think Jeep has really 2 top models with mutually exclusive options.

If not and you say that Summit is the top model why not offer ORAII and Indigo on Summit?

Well, for the indigo, they have Brown as an exclusive option instead of indigo. I'm not following how not having indigo makes it not a top model. As for the offroad package, it's because they are gearing the Summit more towards the luxury crowd and not offroad crowd. It's just like the SRT8 isn't geared towards offroad crowd either.

This was discussed months ago, but there are a lot of new members since then. They could not possibly offer indigo in anything but a single trim level, and not the most popular one, due to the shortage of blue cows. It's as simple as that!

Bill, I quess you are right about the shortage of blue cows. I looked through the list of about 20 white Overlands in my area and found only 1 with a blue interior. Quess I will have to order. (My dad was a dairy farmer and we never had any blue cows). Al

Re: 2014 Overland vs. Summit

I have been seeing a lot of comments regarding dislike of the 2014 Summit compared to the 2014 Overland. What is the difference. I saw a Summit next to an Overland and other than different rims and the honeycomb grill on Summit, they look identical. What is the difference??

Re: 2014 Overland vs. Summit

For me, I dislike the additional chrome trim that runs along the bottom of the vehicle, the wheel well body molding looks better IMO on the Overland vs. the Summit, and square tail pipes don't flow well with the vehicle design.

Sorry for bringing back an old thread but I'm also trying to decide between Overland and Summit now. I also don't like the look of the extra chrome. Anyone have suggestions for modding (painting/removing chrome, replacing with Overland parts, etc)?
